The William Adams that you referred to is the son of James Adams Jr. b.Oct. 8,1753 in Albemarle Co., VA and d. Aug. 1835 in Elbert Co., GA. and Jane Cunningham b. 1751 in Charlotte Co., VA and d. 1815 in Elbert Co., GA. They moved to GA around 1796. William H. Adams b. 1778 d. 1854 married twice - 1st to Sarah Head b. 1800 d.? and 2nd to Catherine Mansfield b. 1799 d. Dec. 1818. Catherine was the mother of Anne Banks Adams b. Oct. 14, 1814 d. May 12, 1886. She married Thomas Jefferson Maxwell May 31, 1831 and I don't have information about their decendants because her brother, Hiram Gaines Adams is my bloodline. Our ancestors prior to James Adams Jr. were James Adams Sr. b.1730 in Goochland Co., VA and d. Mar. 18, 1789 in Fluvanna Co., VA. He married 1751 Cecily Ford b. 1735 d. 1835. They were parents of James Adams Jr. The parents of James Adams Sr, were Robert Adams b. 1690 d. June 17, 1740 Goochland Co., VA and Mourning Lewis b. ? d. Aug. 8, 1765 in Albemarle Co., VA. It is believed that another William Adams b. 1627 James City Co., VA. d. ? It isn't sure on this because of dates which were a problem back in those times. Other reseachers think Robert's father was another Robert? Maybe one day this will be clear. Hope that this will help you in your research and please keep in touch and let me know what you discover on Anne. Have a great weekend!
